It’s hard to believe that we are actually sitting inside our house enjoying the wonderful residential HVAC that we have.
Honestly, the building of this house took so much time that I wasn’t sure it was ever going to get done.
So I’m super thankful to just enjoy the last bits of winter with the exceptional HVAC heating we’ve had this year. When we chose to build our very first, custom home, heating and cooling were a bit part of it. Our old family home was sort of a primer in residential HVAC actually. We had a great run with some pretty standard HVAC equipment for 25 years. We didn’t have one single breakdown in all that time. But when we upgraded to the latest in residential HVAC, we got a lesson in how much the HVAC technology has changed. However, it was really such a bonus because we learned a great deal about HVAC equipment and HVAC technology. The upgrade of the HVAC unit in that house certainly helped get us the big number we were hoping for when we sold it. But we also learned that we wanted to go with a geothermal heat pump for our new, smaller home we just built. We got in the house at the end of fall and that geothermal heat pump went right to work. The radiant floor heating has been wonderful this winter as we are the coziest we’ve ever been. The summer around here is a hot one so we are eagerly looking forward to how the geo heat pump handles that. If it’s anything like the HVAC heating, we’re going to be ecstatic.
